What is the culture of an organization? How do we create a culture of excellence within our own company or organization?
First, let’s define our terms. Merriam-Webster defines Culture as: A way of thinking, behaving, or working that exists in a place or organization (such as a business). The set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterizes an institution or organization.
For those of us who don’t wear four stars or run multi-billion dollar businesses, moral courage gives us the ability to act rightly in a world that is in itself, not right. It is what enables us to persist against frustration, take responsibility for our actions, act humanely in the midst of inhumanity, and perhaps above all else, refuse to compromise our values despite the very real threat of experiencing personal or professional insult, injury, or loss.
Conviction, commitment, credibility—the three pillars of morally courageous leadership. They reflect a way of thinking and being that compels others to lead a life of integrity, purpose, and meaning. They serve as tangible reminders that we are not here to merely make a living but rather, to make a positive difference.
Here’s a fundamental question: How do you get people to work? Answering fundamentally, you form a contract with them consisting of a set amount of compensation and benefits in return for an equally set amount of work.

The focus of any organisation is to fulfill the vision that has been set. The role of the leader is to see that it happens. When the leader forgets about the cause to focus on the position then it is like a ship out of control heading for danger.
Great leaders serve. It’s the name of my website, but it’s also something I’ve learned over the years. Great leaders serve others and they do so in five very strategic ways. Ken Blanchard and I wrote about these practices in our book The Secret – What Great Leaders Know and Do. We recently celebrated the 10th anniversary edition of The Secret but the lessons are as true today as they were when it was first published.
Newcomers in leadership positions often feel as if they’re wearing clothes that don’t quite fit. But the ability to mitigate this discomfort and to project a sense of calmness and clarity - even if you don’t feel it - is one of the keys to effective leadership.
We must lead the shift to a way that maximizes opportunities for investigation, problem solving, and collaboration while maintaining assurance that each child is gaining knowledge, and is able to apply it both alone and with others.
These findings also cement the truth of why the command-and-control style of leadership is no longer effective given how we can’t lean on our positional authority to assume our perspective and memories are correct [Share on Twitter].

From the article: "Whether you’re leading a huge team, a small committee, or…a child, if your goal is to elicit the other person to willingly commit and buy-in to your request, rather than to make them grudgingly comply (and, we all know how that usually works out), then you need to help them see why it is in their best interest to do so.
